Newton Men's All Terrain Trainer Terra Momentus
The Newton All Terrain Trainer, Terra Momentus, is the winner of the coveted "Most Innovative Product of the Year" award from Triathlon America. Terra Momentus is Latin for earth momentum, which is exactly what Newton has done with the Trail Guidance trainer. This shoe is great for taking natural running off the beaten path and on to trail running. Engineered with intelligent control for all foot types on all types of terrain, from groomed bridle paths to technical mountain trails.Barefoot drills. Start with 2-4 low-intensity barefoot strides, focusing on landing softly on your midfoot.
start slowly. Begin with a short run. 1 mile, no more than 2.
The 10-minute rule. Run every other day, increasing distance no more than 10 minutes each time. Rotate with your current shoes to maintain your fitness/training for at least 2 weeks.
Build your foundation. Do not introduce speed, intensity and distance until you have adjusted to the Newton Running shoes.
Why bother? Your connective tissue (muscle and tendon) and structure (the fine bones in your feet) need time to strengthen and adapt. Newtons allow your foot to feel the ground as if you were running barefoot. If you increase your running volume too quickly, you may experience calf tenderness.
Focus on form. Good Natural Running form allows you to run with greater efficiency and less injury.
The Momentum is an off-road trainer designed for runners committed to a more efficient Natural Running style. Whether you follow Chi, Pose, Evolution, barefoot running or just want to run better, the Momentum allows you to run naturally - with greater efficiency and less overuse injuries (like Achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis). Recommended for any distance and terrain, as well walking or hiking.
